Urgencies- Present Their Manifesto CD. Hey, remember Texan sleaze-teens Pure Rubbish from a few years back? They were gonna be famous. Like Guns N’ Roses with real hair. Something happened though. Something crazy. But that’s not what this is about. That shit was 2003. Done with. This is about the bass player and the guitar player, and their new band, the Urgencies. Imagine mashing up Hanoi Rocks and the Replacements into one big ball of alcoholic jitters and bombastic junk-rock, and you’ve got Urgencies. This is pure, uncut, jangle-free firebrand rock, with heart, guts, and just enough brains to get by. Top notch stuff, in the same echelon as the Revolvers or the Diamond Dogs. Sniff it out.
